Can you get it back !!!????
This is a question to all the older surfers who for what ever reason stopped and started again, I'm talking about the guys/girls who used to be good surfers not the have a go hero's on holiday etc.
But the ones who could surf well i.e overhead waves big drops and basically the chargers in the line up.
I had to stop around eight years ago due to family commitments and not living at the coast, but my life has had a huge shift and I am longing to get back in the water, so will I get it back ? Or to an expectable standard?
I think it really depends on how old you are. I have a neighbor that can still wind surf pretty good (he is in his 40s), but for me, I was away too long and time has passed. I have several neighbors who have left, moved back and taken it up again, but they are usually younger.
The waves on our beach are not too high, either, but I think it is a balance issue. You might want to start out somewhere easy. I would have hated to start out again in Florianopolis or the North Shore.
The likelihood is that the movement patterns you built up through motor learning over the years are simply held back and locked away ready to be re-activated so the abilities should still have good potential
You likely wont simply be able to get back to the same level straight away- particularly while you re-develop the specific aspects of fitness will have become neglected over time
As a former athlete you have great potential in getting back to close to a previous level if you truly want to.
Cheers mate your comment has made me think of when I watch some surfing on TV through the surfer head-cam and I physically feel the movement and feel the drops in my stomach, is that related to what your saying kinda thing ?
In a way yes. You effectively store a movement pattern in your mind to recall it when you have the need. Your nerves know how they should fire- its just about putting it into action.
